Red Sox get early start on Halloween

According to an article on Halloween costumes, even the Boston Red Socks got an early start on the fun at a game on September 16.

The Boston Red Sox didn't need an interpreter for this: With one quick wardrobe change, Daisuke Matsuzaka went from star pitcher to Teletubby.

"I didn't think there was anything that could make me laugh last night. There was," manager Terry Francona said yesterday.

Many teams use a late-season trip as a chance to have some fun with the rookies, dressing them in outlandish costumes that must be worn on the flight to the next city. Dice-K had to don the outfit after Sunday's 4-3 loss to New York at Fenway Park.

In addition to Matsuzaka, Boston's veterans dressed reliever Hideki Okajami and outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury as female pirates, pitcher Clay Buchholz as Minnie Mouse and outfielder Brandon Moss as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.

Francona said watching Matsuzaka clear customs at Pearson International Airport in Toronto was "hilarious."

"Somebody wrote a cheque for $102-million, and he's going through dressed as a rodent," Francona said.
